Vintage Paper Ornaments with May Arts Ribbon
Hi everyone, It’s Joann with you today to share a fun little Christmas project using Core’dinations and May Arts Ribbon. Here are some Vintage Christmas Ornaments that are really fun and easy to decorate. These ornaments feature vintage trim, cord and burlap string from May Arts as we are lucky enough to be hoping with them this week!
Look a little closer at the detail on one of them. Another option would be to add glitter for a more sparkly version of these beauties!
Vintage Ornament Supplies:
- Core’dinations Core Couture Glitter Cardstock
- Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- May Arts Ribbon
- Spindle Ornament From Christmas Ornaments SVG Kit By SVGCuts
- Bling From My Stash
- Liquid Adhesive
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps.
Step 1: Cut all of your pieces out in the paper you choose. I used a combination of White, Glitter and Vintage papers for the color combination I wanted but you can use whichever paper you desire.
Step 2: Assemble your ornament and once complete it will look like this.
Step 3: Using your Sand It Gadget, sand your panels that form the top of the ornament to show off that lovely embossing. Don’t forget yo use your Dust Buddy to clean-up the dust!
Step 4: Thread through the hole on top, the ribbon or twine you want to use to hang the ornament. Hint: If you do not want to see the knot, pass the ribbon or twine from the top down, tie your knot and then the know will be hidden in the top of the ornament. Once that is complete you can tie closed both the top and bottom of the largest piece of the ornament. It is good to have an extra hand with this part. Once you are finished with and the ribbon and twine you can start decorating!
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a great day my crafty friends!
Thanksgiving is always a great time to get together with family and friends and celebrate the blessings in our lives. And like any fun gathering, food is always involved. Some recipes become yearly traditions, while others are soon forgotten. Why not organize your recipes with a seasonal mini album?

We are excited to share Xyron projects with you all week long.
And do not forget to head over to the Xyron blog for MORE inspiration AND a giveaway! I heard a rumour that it might be a sticker maker?!??!?!
Designer Shaunte Wadley is up first with some mixing and matching of Tim Holtz Kraft Core Season Impressions, Kraft-Core and Fancy Pants Core Impressions. And see that super cool strip of pumpkins? Shante used her 2.5 Sticker maker so keep scrolling to check out easy it is to adhere that with Xyron tools.
How is easy is that???
It’s like magic…it’s sticky and NO MESS!
Here’s a close up of it finished with the die cut layers:
THEN after you sand with your Sand it Gadget, take your chalks and apply desired color for a really cool look! Not sure if you saw Friday’s post but Designer Kate Nolan Denham did that on her layout, too, but with some Black Magic..super cool!

Tis the season upon us and what better way to celebrate and encourage the spirit of Halloween with some Halloween pictures which showcase Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic cardstock collection. This layout came together so easy with the Nostalgic cardstock collection.
The colors are so festive. Sanding this kraft core give so much texture to the layout.
I have made a second page to complement the layout with a large pocket with tag’s, so that additional photo’s can be included.
I added a bit of coloured raffia and some Authentique pattern papers to bring out some color from the photo and all the elements showcase the happiness of the photo so well.
So I know you have been seeing a lot of the Tim Holtz KRaft-Core Seasonal Impressions but it is so perfect for this time of year since it is seasonal. The Spring words and phrases not only make it perfect for Springtime but Easter, too!
Sand it….sand it…sand it!!! And add other Tim Holtz Kraft-Core accents like designer Shaunte Wadley did here on this layout. AND how much do you love that pop of red? Just perfect.
And don’t forget only a few more days to win some David Tutera Celebrate goodies! March only!
